to do, right? if, in fact, that is what terry crisp is doing. instead, keeping them honest tonight, cnn's drew griffin has discovered only a slim fraction of the $26 million that woman raised could even possibly have gone towards rescuing dogs. the charity watchdog group has slim doubts how that slim fraction was spent. as they put it, the numbers don't seem to add up. the appeal though, reuniting dogs and troops, is powerful. just as it was 6 1/2 years ago during hurricane katrina when crisp was running an organization and the appeal was reuniting pets and survivors. >> terry crisp joins me. she is in sacramento, california. good to see you. >> good to see you, anderson, too. this is tabasco. he was one of the survivors from hurricane katrina. he was found on the washing machine of a house that was flooded. he, his sister and another dog all survived. >> turns out, i didn't know it at the time, there were serious questions about noah's wish and a legal settlement with the state of california. wreef been reporting on this for weeks now as part of a continuing investigation to the people

with breaking news. mitt romney one-on-one, speaking out on cnn. the gop presidential candidate is on the defensive tonight. his campaign added two new senior advisers after a rough few days. and now they're hitting back, accusing the obama campaign of stooping to new lows. the issue, once again mr. romney's involvement at bain capital where he made his fortune. the focus centers around when he finally broke ties with that firm. the obama camp is claiming mr. romney lied about his end date at bain. even suggesting his actions could be criminal. to counter attack, mr. romney went on a media blitz today. something he rarely does. he talked with cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta this evening. >> governor, thanks for joining us. let's talk first about this controversy over when you left bain capital. i'll put one of the documents in question up on screen. their sec filing stating that you were ceo at bain capital past 1999. when you say you left bain to run the olympics. why was your name still on these documents? and why didn't you clear this up sooner? >> well, i w
cnn opinion research polling shows that people are really split on this, folks, 50-49 on this ruling. they are no less divided on what to do next about it. 52% favor all or most of what's in the law. 47% oppose all or most of what's in the law. yet in the very same polling, 51% believe that congress should repeal the whole thing. we'll talk a bit in a moment about the politics of repealing the health care act as well as the tricky but by no means impossible mechanics of it. first, tax or penalty? joining us now, ari fleischer, cnn political contributor and former white house press secretary for george w. bush. all, bill burton, senior strategist for the top pro-obama super pac and senior legal analyst for cnn jeffrey toobin. jeff, let me begin with you. it's a simple question but not a simple answer. tax or penalty? >> john roberts' opinion said that this penalty, tax, whatever you want to call it, this punishment, this payment, was justified under the taxing power of the constitution. that was why he approved the whole plan. that's what he said. what a bunch of politicians want to c
for your time, we appreciate it. >> thanks, guys. >> cnn's jim acosta, who conducted that interview, joins me. along with cnn's chief political analyst gloria borger. there's clearly a strategy here. your interview, other network interviews as well, part of the strategy by the romney campaign. would you say the takeaway is that the campaign is very worried about this bain story and how it's unfolding? >> i think so, soledad. we got very late notice about this interview possibility. heard about it, about 1:00 this afternoon, and found out the governor was doing a round robin of interviews. because of the fact he said almost the same thing to all of us is an indication that, yes, they were working on this message and they wanted to get it out there. >> gloria, you were in boston. you just got back from the romney headquarters in boston. give us a sense of how the campaign is handling this and what changing they're making to deal with some of this. >> i can tell you, as jim said, that romney was outraged, the campaign was pretty outraged. it's clear, though, they believe, by setting up all th
talking about that person? i would love to see and i'll give you a challenge. i would like to see cnn come out with a policy that said moving forward, we're not going to talk about the gunman. what we're going to say is a coward walked into a movie theater and started shooting people. he's apprehended, the coward's in jail, he will never see the light of day again, let's move on to the victims. never talk to him again. and i'll tell you the analysis i'll give or analogy. i'm not great with words right now. not been my best week. if you think about it, you used to see people jump on the fields all the time -- everybody would cover it and everybody would laugh, right. the networks said we're not going to cover that anymore. when was the last time you saw somebody jump on a field? that's a completely different level, right? but there's a lot of reasons. we always say why, but we never know why. we've got enough data, let's start figuring out why. and i'll guarantee one of them is because they want to be on television. they want to be infamous. we can stop it. we can't stop it. we can only get
insider trading, right? not exactly. cnn's dana bash and a producer have done some digging into the law. they discovered not just a lingering loophole but how it got there. >> reporter: this was memorable because it was so rare. president obama signing a bipartisan law congress passed swiftly and overwhelmingly. to make sure there's no insider trading in congress.s crowed about restoring trust in government. >> if there was any chance of fact of using information for personal profit, we were not going to allow it. >> closing loopholes to ensure that members of the congress play by the exact same rules as everyone else. >> reporter: but keeping them honest, cnn has learned that not all the loopholes were closed. here's why. the key to making sure lawmakers don't profit off secret information they learn on the job is based on a new rule. financial transactions over $1,000 must be reported in 45 days. >> so that the public could have more real-time understanding of what their members and what senior staff and other high government officials were doing with their finances. what kinds of tra
similar to president obama's. is that really, then a fair criticism? >> here's the problem. cnn's been covering it for two days now. it is gaffe after gaffe. you leave israel after insulting the palestinians. and here's the problem, if you're, in fact, president romney, the problem is, you've now offended the palestinians. and they don't see you as a fair arbitrary. so in fact president romney would set the peace process back in the middle east. step back from sort of the politics back and forth of it. from a campaign standpoint, i know we want to say this one incident or that one incident this gaffe or that gaffe, isn't problematic. at this point, it's become accumulative. there is an aggregate problem here, after gaffe after gaffe. at some point from just a purely campaign standpoint, i have to pile on. like some of -- the campaign itself is problematic because some of these statements coming out right now should have never been green lighted. like the whole line of -- the cultural line with the palestinian stuff. someone along the process should have said, there's a way to talk abou
blank to me, anderson who said that in some circles, focusing on the story in the mainstream media, cnn by you, anderson cooper, is a great gift to these lawmakers in particular, because it really riles up the circle of supporters that they have. it's a small circle. but it is important to them. that really thinks they're doing the right thing here. and on that note, i talked to other aids about this as well, people who serve with them on capitol hill. who said that just on the substance of what they're trying to do, they actually think that they're sort of like canarys in the coal mine. that these five are trying to raise an issue that may be four, five, ten years from now, is going to be an aha moment. in fact, one senior gop aide said to me, these folks legitimately believe they're like winston churchill talking about a threat that no one else sees. >> appreciate it. professor john esposito, appreciate it as well. >>> up next, raw politics. mitt romney's headline making overseas trip. will the tough talk help in november? what does the tone reveal about the kind of foreign policy pre
